Strange #salad at the steakhouse the other night 😜 Back in #America when I was a kid, we use to blow in the leaves and make ‘#toad bellies’. πŸ˜‚   Had no idea you could #Eat them!!!

#Fire Drill – #China Style!

#Fire drill! #China style! πŸ“£ Because we take your security seriously – we use real #smoke bombs to stink the building up, train you to go through usually locked doors, and ask that you guess when a fire starts because we have no smoke alarms. But you know, security! Β At least now maybe they’ll stop padlocking all the outside doors at night πŸ˜‚

#Rose Tea – The #Herbs of China

However despite my mistaken belief that they loved #EnglishTea , I have since learned that the actually prefer #herbal teas.  This box for sal at the local supermarket is full of #roses for #rosetea. They also like #lavender tea, #chamomile, #jasmine, and others.  Makes the #cafe very fragrant!
